Default 25 to 26 three-piece hull - Who are they?

Hi,

just sold my 2015 Robalo R300 and moving down to a 25-26. Looking around for 3 piece hull center console with a really high deadrise (like a 24 degrees or more). I don’t have a big list to start exploring except 25 Competition, 25 Contender. Anymore out there to share?

Its just me and my wife fishing 95% of the time so extra seating is not needed. Got to have above deck live well at transom (not in-deck), lots of rod holders all over the gunnel and more importantly, a twin engine set-up that cruise easily in the mid-high 30 knots (sorry we use knots here in Singapore).

Thank You in Advance!
Eric

Is Regulator a 3 piece?

Our previous trusty R300. Time to downsize to a mid-20s now. You can see the extra rod holders I added on the gunnel and behind the helm seats is almost impossible to run a plumbing to drain the water. So a 3-piece for me is the solution along with other benefits like a really flat deck at the front.

Thanks jcirks,

Couldn’t find any Regulator 25 with a flat forward deck. Like the Reg but need a flat deck all the way.

Regulator has not made a “Classic” aka flat deck in years.

Angler 2600cc fits your list, but can be hard to find

Made you talking without forward seats or without the step up like the older ones had? All the new ones are flat decked with forward seats.


Op why is 3 piece so important? Just curious. Like a reg is 4 pieces, well 6 by their count, but it’s hull, stringer, deck, cap. Then console and t top is how they count 6.

It says on Facebook they have a build slot for the 25’. 10-12 months build time

Looks like a nice boat. Almost identical to the competition

Is it the same hull as the old Formula’s and the 25’ Sea Vee?

Albury has the option of a flat deck I think. The deadrise may be a bit less than 24 though.Was at their place yesterday, and they are very nice.

As Goose mentioned above...check out the Albury Brothers. They build the 27 both ways...with forward seating and with out. 20 degree deadrise but its not so much the deadrise vs how the hull is designed around it. The ride over all in many sea conditions is something you need to try....vs a 24 degree. Gets up on plane effortlessly, uses way less fuel, never pounds, she is heavy with all her weight in the bottom. The design yields almost the entire hull length in the water vs the angle that is typical of a 24 degree boat. Check it out for comparison. https://www.alburybrothers.com/models/27.html

There are a couple of boat that will meet your specifications, but you pretty much described a 25 Contender to the T. With a pair of 200s, your desire cruising speed will be met provided sea conditions allow and the tournament model does not have forward seating. The live well is in the transom. The gunwales are very wide and you can have about 20 rod holders installed as your needs dictate. rod holders can also be added to the rear of the transom, alongside the console, On the T top and horizontal storage under the gunnels.

if you can make it to the Miami boat show, you will be able to see virtually every boat in person that comes anywhere close to meeting your criteria.

Wow! Really appreciate the expanded list that’s coming along. A great thanks from fellow hulltruth followers from the other side of the world to you guys in States.

The 25 Competition seems to be good choice. I’m not going up any larger than a 25 so the Albury maybe out. Didn’t knew the Angler boats are 3-piece until today as well. Interesting list shared by AquasportOX66 and i’ll Check the list out.

Thank You all in Advance!

I am weary of the LTB 25. I live locally and stopped by a couple of weeks ago. The shop has no real management present just a few rough looking hourly guys, also a boat they were in between laying glass in was left outside and full of rain water. This may not be an issue now however I would hate to be the unsuspecting owner of the saturated boat I saw. Dollar for Dollar it's hard to beat a 28 ww. Personally I feel they ride and fish better than my 31 open contender and with a pair of 4 cylinders should be a 2mpg boat!

Thanks M9000.

Ive been to FLIBS and Miami show many times now. Almost signed a SeaVee 29 or a SeaHunter but bulked at the price back in 2018 as I find the price have escalated too much too fast. The wait was also a factor.
